I just successfully tamed the exact beast I'd failed to tame a little earlier and this time I ensured I had it targetted before throwing the meat. Again, it may be a coincidence, but so far it fits.

I can say with 100% certainty that I had the Pantharas targeted as I threw the meat during both of my successful tames.

You might be onto something. During at least two of my unsuccessful attempts I know for a fact that I didn't target before I threw the meat.

Plot Twist Alert!!

Here is my video of 1st try tame.. I did NOT have pet targeted. Might have to do with how the meat was placed by the pet??
Maybe the angle in which you approach the trapped beast?? Someone did mention to try taming via behind it..

There's no buff or debuff just a blood splash. After the blood spash you have to press the tame button or you'll fail.
Tried that but there was no blood either. Also had them targetted to see if the blood spatter would show on them when I tried.

If there's no blood splash you won't success when trying to tame the panthara :(

My druid found some meat while running about. If any one has a Horde character in need of meat on Moon Guard, let me know and I'd be willing to sell it to you for cheaper than the AH :3
EDIT: It has been sold. Sorry :C

That is what i ment by "fantasy", or posting to post a "post". Goodbye.
What an odd thing to say. Can assure you people have them tamed (surprised you haven't seen people running around with them). Just because they've tamed the cats doesn't mean they'll be using them, as cats are a useless family compared to something with hero, battle res, levitate, shield wall etc. Some people also like Hati and don't essence swap him, if i could get a matching wolf tame I know I probably wouldn't.

Here's a link to my alts pets showing the Alpha/Stalker tamed on the official armory; Can't really PTR/fake that:

I have tried litterally 5 times and failed. I spend a lot of hours farming the meat of the talbuks.
I don't mind the challenge or the hours of work putting into it, it only adds to the 'it was worth it' feeling.
And I do appreciate a bit of special things to do before getting a pet, makes it more immersive to have tamed a beast.
But, somehow, I still wish there was a bit more of confirmation or more certainty to a tame.
Meaning, it would be a bit less frustrating if there is a message on screen or chat that says: "You are now able to tame this beast".
Or that you can use the meat for a maximum of two times before it vanishes from your bags, to get a second chance so to speak.

Like with other non hunter related quests where you have to weaken a specific mob to 30 or 20% health before you can use an item on them.
Most of the time you'll get a message like 'the target is weakened' and then you can use a certain item.

I wish it is with taming this beautifal cat as well, a bit more confirmation that something is possible, besides the blood spatter animation.

Anyway, of to the next piece of meat :) I'm not angry, but when you grind for a piece of meat only to fail, makes you feel uncomfortable.

Greetings and regards everybody, I love this forum.

I hate this is happening. I failed 3 times myself. You'll get it! If you haven't, watch Ligewolf video a few posts up. May help!

I've had two successful tames. The Indigo, and the Fel-Green.

Both times I was an idiot and ended up using at least two pieces of meat.

What worked:

1. Ice Trap - I'm not sure, because I didn't think about it until just now, reading the latest posts... but both the cats I tamed were stationary - lying down, so they didn't walk into the trap. I just tossed the trap on them - not pre-targeted.... but I'm sure after that it was targeted. I don't use Ice Trap that much because I main BM, but does the trap's catch auto launch the target?

2. Feign Death - to immediately drop aggro (though I didn't show aggro around the target, which is how I screwed up one of the times by not hitting FD before the meat.) Don't be fooled. Just do it.

3. Camo - get closer.

4. Toss Meat from stealth. I just tossed it on them (not pre-targetted, but again, I main BM, so does Camo clear the target? This might be important...)

***Both times at this point I hit TAME and nothing - because the cat wasn't targeted, so I had to target, then hit Tame again.***

Not sure what cleared the target.

5. TAME

Not sure, but the "blooding" might clear the target. Don't be me. Thankfully, I managed to do it all in time... tame/OH CRAP/target/TAME...UGH.

You can also visibly see the blooding effect when you get it in the right place.

I'm still farming for the rest... so if I figure out any more details, I'll followup.

Good luck.

I got mine on the first go with the SV Trap->Feign->Camo->Meat->Tame sequence. No flubs, but be aware that the toss range for the meat is WAY SHORTER than the range for anything else. Had one more meat... so I sold it, haha. (what, that stuff's NEVER GONNA BE as valuable as it is right now...) Edit: it was one of the gray ones, duskcloak alpha.

someday I'll find someplace to host a sig that isn't stupid money-grubbing photobucket

I failed twice because the meat did not land in the right spot. You need to target the Panthara and drop the meat exactly on his target ring. The first two fails I approached from the front. It is best to sneak up behind. I had no problem the 3rd time. I did petition a GM. After 3 petitions, he finally said, "Try to be a bit more sneaky."

Does anyone know where to find the Blue-Gray Panthara on live, other than Mac'Aree?

I've been reading the comments before and after my own post and thanks for all the step by step procedure on how to get it done.
I appreciate it alot. Also reading about successes is assuring me that it is possible, just that I did it wrong.
Also grats to everybody who managed to get a Panthara. :D
I hope that I eventually get a panthara.
One thing is for sure, if I do manage to get it done then it will be a special pet for sure and something to remember on how 'difficult' it was to get it.
Even when it might be frustrating at times, it is still making my heart beat faster. Just the whole process of taming a panthara makes it a 'bonding' experience so to speak.

Ack! I'm sorry. I just sold it. I'll go edit my message so no one else gets confused. If I get another, I'll give you a poke ASAP!

EDIT: JUST GOT ANOTHER :D I'm Ushi, Tauren druid. I'll add you to friends and give you a poke when I see you log on.

When you throw the meat, do you also have the beast targetted? Just now I successfully tamed after throwing the meat with the beast targetted. Then I tried to tame another but it failed, but in that instance I hadn't targetted the panthara before throwing the meat, I only clicked on it to tame.

Maybe it's a coincidence but it makes me wonder.
Hmm, that's an interesting idea. I do believe both times I tamed panthara I had them targetted while throwing the meat, but I can't say with 100% certainty.
I just got done testing taming without targeting the cats. I had 3 meats saved from Thursday - was out of town the last few days and got back today. I hopped on, and followed the taming methods but did NOT target the cat. Trapped, FD to ensure there was no aggro, slipped into Camo, and approached from behind. Threw meat, waited for splatter effect, targeted the cat, hit tame and received the emote. This was on the Alpha down in the Grove that has the blue ones walking with it.

I waited for the trap to drop and everything to reset and tried again. Made sure cat wasn't targeted and dropped meat right on top of it's head, targeted cat, hit tame, received emote and instantly picked up aggro.

Tried a 3rd time but this time, I targeted cat, dropped meat, hit tame, and instant success.

Not sure if anyone else has tested this as the drop rates for the meat are soooo low, but it might be beneficial to the community if others tried it to see if you HAVE to target the cat.

After 400+ kills and another 4-5 hours farming without counting anymore, I finally got some meat. Suddenly, they're dropping regularly for me, even though I'm farming the same mobs. Gotta love rng.

Anyway, I have 5 meat on live for next week (wanted a few extra in case I screw up). I tamed the panthara I want from Krokuun without flaws.

I am going to transfer my hunter and meat to the ptr to do some testing. If anyone knows anything specific they'd like to see tested let me know.

Edit: I will be doing this later tonight. I can test specific npcs too.

I tried again, and failed. The issue for me was not getting the meat in the right spot.... no blooding effect. I had no backup meat.

UGH.
